Leah Williamson will eventually become “one of the best in women’s football,” according to Alex Scott. And now, with the Lionesses’ victory at Euro 2022, the former England right-back has been proven correct.
Since the World Cup in 1966, Williamson has led England to their first significant victory. In the final on Sunday at Wembley, Sarina Wiegman’s team defeated Germany 2-1.
Even though the 25-year-old was only named captain early this year, she has already won awards. Towards the end of the defender’s playing career at Arsenal, Scott played beside her.
Williamson joined the Arsenal team when he was 17 years old. Scott also expected huge things for her teammate, a teenager at the time, in 2015.
“We have completed the process after much discussion. The children are OK. I’m going to soak it all in because it will be the proudest moment of my life till the day I have children.
“Making every second count was advised because I would be reliving it, and I did that today. The social shift is the tournament’s lasting legacy. We’ve gathered folks and invited them to play games. The trip has just begun.
I’m sorry for shouting, but I adore each and every one of you. I’m trying really hard to avoid swearing since I’m so proud to be English.
Scott, who represented England 140 times in her career, watched the game from the punditry studio. And at the last whistle, it was understandable that she would be upset.
“There are so many people who have been engaged in getting women’s football to this stage, to see this squad raise this trophy, it’s not just me,” she remarked. I’m at a loss for words, Gabby.
“This is actually the outcome for which we have all been hoping and dreaming. how much money has been put into the games to get them to this point.
